Fragile:1. Easily broken, damaged, or destroyed; frail.

"As if you could kill time without injuring eternity." Henry David Thoreau

Today's post contains more photos from the wall art at Wynwood for Art Basel 2011. There are so many great captures and so many details to consume.  You can imagine how happy I felt surrounded by art regardless of the sad state of the economy and it's effects on these old buildings in one of the poorest spots in Miami.  Strolling past urine soaked corners maintaining a smile through a pinched nose .  How easily my bad mood slid right off my body allowing a sunflower of inspiration to grow in the pit of my being.

I wink at a girl skating past me in pink skates while her father conducts business in front of a gallery. Bits of paint spray carried by the wind forces me to hold my breathe again but the smile never recedes.  Taking advantage of slow or non existent traffic I pause where it pleases me to watch artists administer the last touches on the days masterpiece. *click*

"DESTINY is a feeling you have that you know something about yourself nobody else does. The picture you have in your own mind of what you're about WILL COME TRUE. It's a kind of a thing you kind of have to keep to your own self, because it's a fragile feeling, and you put it out there, then someone will kill it. It's best to keep that all inside." Bob Dylan 

"Remember: that giants sleep too soundly; that witches are often betrayed by their appetites; dragons have one soft spot, somewhere, always; hearts can be well-hidden, and you can betray them with your tongue." Neil Gaiman

"Falling as deeply in love with as many people, places, and things as you possibly can -- that's the best revenge on the unjust brevity of this fragile life." Marc Parent

"Trust is a fragile thing - difficult to build, easy to break. It cannot be bargained for. Only if it is freely given it can be expected in return." Peter Lerangis

"Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow." Alice Mackenzie Swaim
